Many wholesalers sell glass beads in colorful mixes that can help spark your creativity and stock your empty bead containers at the same time. Often, wholesalers will sell a glass bead mix by the pound or hank. They usually contain a wide variety of colors and shapes of the same kinds of beads (such as seed beads, Indian beads, or Czech rondelles, for example). Purchasing in bulk like this helps keep the cost of the beads down – savings you can pass on to your customers. Many of these mixes also contain beads that work perfectly as spacers in many projects, too.
